The Salvation Army is still helping people in the southeast. Instead of the Warm Welcome Shelter, they took a look around to see where the need may be. They decided on serving a hot meals twice a week.

"It's going to be called the Warm Welcome Kitchen," explained Major Heather Harbin. "We're looking for volunteers to cook a meal or even to donate to that to offset the costs of the meals. So that's what they're doing."

The first meal is set to be Tuesday, November 14th at the Salvation Army and then the following Thursday at St. Paul's United Church. 

"It's going to be until March, the same time the Warm Welcome would have run."

As well, the Salvation Army will soon be kicking off their Kettle Drive to raise money for the Food Bank.

"Come the end of November, we will be starting our Kettle Campaign, so that will be a way to help the Food Bank for the whole year. That will be our emphasis through December."

Major Harbin also expressed her gratitude to the residents of Estevan and area on their generosity during the Canada Post Food Drive. 

"That filled up our shelves very well. It was excellent, we were so pleased. It was a great success and the Food Bank is looking really good."

"We're so grateful to everyone's generosity. This will take us through the next couple of months."
